Former Red Devils midfielder Ray Wilkins had some harsh words for Jose Mourinho's summer signing, saying the club should have brought in Michael Keane.
Wilkins said United should have moved for Burnley's Michael Keane over Benfica's Linelof, who he believes "has done nothing" in football.
"We've got young Keane has done exceptionally well at Burnley, we're looking to bring him back at Manchester United for £28m, all of a sudden Lindelof is 30 [million]," Wilkins said. "Now, when we bring someone in from Europe, it always starts with a three. This guy has done nothing. Absolutely nothing. Yet Keane has played a season exceptionally well in the Premier League, but we're talking £25m. This guy's coming in at £32m, £33m. Can he do it? We know Keane can, yet we're prepared to spend."
Well Mr. Wilkins, Lindelof has won several titles with Benfica, played regular Champions League football and a full international. He is also two years younger than Keane. So yeah!!
